GUIDELINES FOR OFFENDER PLACEMENT
The conditions of probation or amended orders placing an offender into the 2nd 25th Judicial District Intermediate Sanction Facility must include a statement denoting the placement is in lieu of incarceration in TDCJ/Correctional Institutions Division or a county jail. This will allow the Intermediate Sanction Facility to remain within CJAD specifications. The correct wording is as follows:
"Pursuant to Community Corrections Facilities provisions of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Articles 42.12 and in lieu of incarceration in the Correctional Institutions Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice or a County Jail, the offender is ordered to reside at the 2nd 25th Judicial District Intermediate Sanction Facility for a term of not more than 24 months. The offender shall abide by the facility's rules and regulations, including, but not limited to, submitting to random urinalysis and periodic searches for the purpose of safety and security, and performing community service work and participating in appropriate programs as outlined by the facility program guidelines." Remain in said program until it is determined by the Facility Director that all requirements are met and the offender can be successfully released; until participation is medically incapable; or until ordered by the court.
NOTE: If the Court requires specific conditions, those conditions should be clearly written into the Court Order. Beside community service work, the residents participate in other programs and classes. See PROGRAM portion of this web site for more information.
